The Pyramid of Cheops

The entrance to the great pyramid of Cheops can be seen just above the camel rider’s head. Although a steady stream of people enter through a passage that is just behind the rider. This entrance was forced into the pyramid be Caliph Ma’amun and his men in the 9th century A.D. They were in search of a fabled treasure, their efforts were in vane as the treasure had long ago been plundered. This passage is roughly hacked into the huge structure, it later meets a descending corridor that was built for the journey of the pharaoh Cheops into his burial chamber.


The white building in front of the pyramid houses the Solar Barque of Cheops.
